For every beergeek, this is the most important place to visit when you’re in Brussels. Friendly people, who have a real passion for their lambics. Atmosphere is amazing in this cozy place. TO EVERYONE VISITING CANTILLON, give me a heads up, I’d love to trade/share some bottles! (Beer availabilty for take away last edited: 13th of September 2014 --- For take away: Gueuze, Kriek, Rosé de Gambrinus, Grand Cru Bruocsella, Iris, Cuvée Saint Gilloise, Mamouche, Lou Pepe Framboise and Fou’Foune).

Stopped in after a short walk from the Brussels-MIDI station through what seemed to be a bit of a sketchy area. Walked inside and there was a large collection of bustling, lambic drinking people. Took the tour that included 2 glasses of beer, then had a Zwanze 2012. Lucky enough to show up the day after releasing LP Framboise and Fou Fone so walked off with what I could carry. Limit of 5 boxes per person per visit, and they freaking give it away with the prices charged. Nice staff and a neat place. Got pretty crowded in the afternoon and there was quite a line built up to get a beer. All in all a great experience.

Very cool, cave like place that smells lovely. The staff was pretty quick even though there were a lot of people. Some bottles can only be bought to drink there and there’s a (reasonable) 6 bottle limit per beer per customer. Brussels is a horrible city to drive in though (I won’t account for this in the score, don’t worry).

Visited twice this summer, the self-guided tour is really cool with all the history that is embedded in this place. Besides the regular some of the seasonal ones were available for on-site consumption at good prices. Next time I’ll visit during the brewing season to see the machinery in action.

This is a piece of living brewing history. After a short, but passionate, introduction to the brewery and the beers they brew, we took the self guided tour around the small brewery. Highly interesting, lots of old brewing equipment, the coolship, storage room with 100’s of barrels (enjoy the aroma here!) the very small bottling line, bottle storages along the walls. After the tour we enjoyed a couple of beers at the bar. Cheap prices, and good service. A must visit.

Visited in 2011. Great place. It’s like walking around in a museum and the staff turned out to be voulentering as a guide/bartender. Very friendly and allot of knowledge about the beer. You can start by taking a tour through the brewery and then you end up tasting some of their beers. They also had allot of bottles for sale, but the rare bottles where only available for drinking at the brewery.

Located within a stone’s throw from Zuid Station, this tiny brewery is an absolute must-visit for every beer-conscious tourist in Brussels. It still uses the age-old equipment, which you discover on a self-guided tour after a short and serious introduction. This is given by the owner, a friendly and kind elderly gentleman with a good sense of humour (and some eerie attitude towards RB, he he). After exploring the entire production process, right down to the cute, short bottling line, you get two samples (included in the price), and these are, needless to say, excellent. Bottled beer and merchandise are available over the counter. I will happily come here again.

Must-visit in Bussels. Really nice museum, with all the original machinery. Self guided tour. Perfect to have a drink or two or to buy some bottles.

Really cool place to see if you are in Brussels. Took the self guided tour with the two samples at the end. The ambiance was amazing and so was the service. The selection was OK. They only had a few of the regulars available and sparingly at that. Still was an awesome experience that was worth the trip.

Visited several times during trips to Brussels. An obvious must visit for the sour /lambic beer nerd. The location is a little off the beaten path but still very accessible by foot or public transportation. It is a brewery so the atmosphere is just that. You have an opportunity to walk through the brewery for a small fee that includes a couple of small pours upon completion. There is always an opportunity to purchase some rarities for onsite consumption and the standard fare to take away. It depends on timing if they have some of the more popular favorites as Fou Foune or St. Lamvinus. Overall, a must visit for the sour/lambic beer nerd. World class brewery and family that continues to keep to its values of making the best lambics in the world. Highly recommended.
